Deletion (81224-C1-R247)

Delete resolution #247.

Rationale

This resolution is based on past UM absolute opposition to capital punishment which violates both Scripture and Wesley’s Notes. Wesley identifies “the sword” entrusted to governments to punish wrongdoers with “capital punishment” (Romans 13:4). By contradicting Wesley’s Notes, it violates the First Restrictive Rule (ΒΆ 17) and our Constitution.
